Herring Broadcasting Company, is preparing for the launch of a new 24/7 high-definition news channel called One America News Network. Scheduled to launch on July 4th, 2013, the new network will fill a void by providing a credible source of national and international news around the clock along with a number of signature political talk shows.
According to Robert Herring, CEO of HBC, “Americans are starved for a credible source of news delivering substance based on facts. One America News Network will prove to be a trustworthy destination for national and international news. In addition, the network’s political talk shows will tackle a number of subjects that are being ignored by media today.”
One America News Network will also air political talk shows that offer substantive contrarian viewpoints to a plethora of left-leaning shouting-style political news programs. The network’s studio talk programs will debate the role of government, protection of civil liberties, fiscal responsibility, along with highlighting political corruption and government waste.
HBC is already established in the national cable programming industry. Back in 2004, HBC launched one of the first themed 24/7 national high-definition cable networks, WealthTV, which it continues to own and operate. While building a credible 24/7 news service is a major challenge, HBC has plenty of experience already: it has been producing national and international news since 2004, which currently airs three times a day on WealthTV.
In 2012, HBC began preparing for One America News Networks’ launch by upgrading its production facilities to accommodate an additional channel.
“We’ve completed a major multi-million dollar modernization of our uplink and master-control facilities, giving us the latest uplink technologies from Motorola to launch One
America News Network in high definition. Test feeds are currently active,” stated company president, Charles Herring. “Our production teams have been busy shooting pilots for what we anticipate to be signature prime-time political talk shows.”
Additional build-out of production studios is underway in San Diego and Washington, D.C. for One America News Network. The new network has leased production studio and office space within The Washington Times headquarters, giving One America News Network immediate presence in the nation’s capital.
“We’re extremely pleased to have developed a working relationship with The Washington Times that provides access to staff and content,” Charles Herring said.
